Sports Illustrated celebrates Scott Dixon's 5th IndyCar Series Championship win!
Sports Illustrated goes to the Manhattan Car Club to get an exclusive look at Simon Pagenaud's new 2018 IndyCar debuting this upcoming season. A few of the new features include four in-car camera docks, reinforced sidepods for side impacts and an enhanced LED screen. The car has a lower engine cover and smaller wings provide a long, lean profile. Gone are the bulky rear wheel guards, and the front wings are tidy and pleasing to the eye. Drivers have said the new sleek shape creates a smaller aerodynamic wake, which should allow trailing cars to have more stability so passes become less about drafting. Ideally, better racing follows.
Sports Illustrated contributing photographer Kevin Liles captured the unbelievable action this past weekend at the GEICO 500 race at Talladega Superspeedway. Check out the gallery below for our selects that captured the excitement and Ricky Stenhouse Jr's dramatic victory.
